Tales of a reluctant minister

God loves you and has a wonderful plan

How long have you been a Christian?

I suspect you are a Christian. You have probably been a believer for quite some time – 10 to 15 years at least.

Do you have to have called yourself a Christian for that long in order to want to read about missionaries? About a missionary challenging all sorts of preconceptions? I think so. Otherwise you would just read Squire Rushnell.

I suspect that you were either converted in the 1970s-1990s or else you were pretty much born into Christianity.

Did you learn to evangelize during that time?

Were you taught that the essential truth of the Gospel can be summed up in the simple phrase:

“God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life”

That’s a great line.  Really is. I like it a lot.

Stephen was OK with God's plan for him

There’s a problem though. You’ve been a Christian 10 or so years now.  Uhh, what’s up with that “wonderful plan”?

You know, the wonderful plan that God has for you?

The person that explained it to you assured you you there was a plan. You needed to accept jesus so it could happen.

You said “Yes” to God’s plan! So, what did it turn out to be?

Maybe you’ve been the person telling people that God loves them and … there it is again … has a plan for them. So, what is it? It’s not that they should go to heaven when they die, is it? That is a wonderful plan for their death. What are they supposed to do until then?

Go around telling other people that God loves them and has a wonderful plan for their lives?

Doesn’t that seen kind of empty after a while? There must be a better answer somewhere.

Comment me up! Come on, tell me what your plan is.

I wanna know.

What does God have in mind for you?

What plan does God have for you?
